Johns Hopkins is a community committed to diversity and inclusion to achieve and grow excellence. We firmly believe that we can best promote excellence by recruiting and retaining a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff. We also believe in creating a climate of respect that supports their success.

This climate is critical to achieve the best research, scholarship, teaching, health care, and other strategic goals of our University. These values are recognized and supported by Johns Hopkins leadership at all levels. Further, we recognize that the responsibility for excellence, diversity, and inclusion lies with all of us. That means leadership, administration, faculty, staff, and students.

Different Together

As the first American research university, Johns Hopkins University has a long history of training the best and brightest scholars, scientists, and innovators. These people impact their local and global communities. New students are about to embark on a remarkable intellectual and social experience.

The number of incoming Johns Hopkins undergraduate students that identify as underrepresented minorities (URM) has increased from 12 to 23 percent since 2009. Once students arrive on campus, they can take part in various programs to find their place. These programs help them adjust to college life, develop leadership skills, network with other first-generation students or underrepresented students in medical professions.

Many of these programs are offered through the Homewood Centers for Community, Diversity & Inclusion, especially the Office of Multicultural AffairsStudent Disability Services, and the Center for Student Success.

I’m glad I came to Johns Hopkins.

As I have gotten to know some of the people in the Physics and Astronomy Department, I am certain that I made the right decision in coming here.

I’m extremely grateful to be a part of a research team whose methods center individuals’ narratives, expertise, and lived experiences.

I decided to come to Hopkins because I was drawn to the social justice-oriented research being conducted by the sociology department.

Student Development

Krieger Diversity Champions

The Krieger School of Arts & Sciences department diversity champions are a key partner to the Assistant Dean for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. As the primary advocate at the department level, the diversity champion serves as a resource to students, faculty, and staff regarding matters of culture, climate, and inclusion. The Assistant Dean convenes the diversity champions twice a semester to create a community of practice that is grounded in research and evidenced-based practices, discuss departmental challenges and exchange best practices, and provide school and central Office of Diversity & Inclusion updates. In collaboration with their department chair, the champion submits a diversity action plan and provides annual reports to the Dean’s Office regarding progress and challenges in advancing departmental and school-wide goals in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion.
